Impactive (formerly Outvote) was founded in 2017 to contribute critical organizing technology to the progressive movement. Since then, we've spent a whirlwind seven years partnering with progressive campaigns and organizations large and small, across all 50 states (plus Canada!), working closely with each partner to implement and customize our products for their important work. Our platform has grown significantly over time to include best-in-class tools for texting, phone banking, relational organizing, voter registration, and much more - and we're not done yet! 


We are all here with a shared purpose: to empower progressive communities with tools and tactics to reinvigorate democracy, demand equality, and shape a brighter future for all.



We believe that empathy is the foundation for genuine partnerships. In our interactions with our client partners and teammates, we strive to understand the other’s perspective, listen with genuine intention to learn, and refrain from assuming that our experience is the only experience. 



We believe that inclusion allows us to innovate and better serve both our diverse client partners and internal team. We commit to reflection on our own biases, and continuous learning and growth to work toward dismantling systematic oppression. 



We believe that collaboration is the basis of a thriving community. Within our community of client partners and teammates, we prioritize intentional sharing of knowledge, resources, and emotional support. We commit to engaging each other with genuine curiosity and a humble desire to learn. 



We believe that power is meant to be shared. Therefore, we strive to provide powerful and accessible organizing infrastructure to level the playing field across the progressive movement; we also commit to supporting our teammates’ professional and personal growth. 



We believe in prioritizing intentionality when making the strategic decisions that influence our community. We recognize our inherent capacity constraints and spend time deliberately weighing the commitments we take on, aiming to prioritize solutions that will have the greatest impact for our clients and the progressive ecosystem. 


Radical Honesty

We believe that transparency breaks down inequitable power dynamics. We commit to fostering a culture of open communication and direct feedback, where we set realistic expectations and don’t shy away from difficult conversations where everyone can be heard. 


campaigns and organizations trust Impactive to organize and mobilize their volunteers.


We’re building an all-in-one hub for digital outreach and engagement, meant to help advocacy organizations, nonprofits, unions, and electoral campaigns protect democracy and reinvigorate civic society. Are you ready to use your skills to make an impact? We’d love to meet you.
